We are such a good team. It's ridiculous. Best start to a game that we've had all season. This game could EASILY be 3-0 right now if we had a couple of bounces go our way. We keep this up and we'll win just by virtue of puck possession. Forecheck is absolutely unreal.

God I hope we can get a deal done with Semin past this season

Oh we will. That chemistry for that line is too good to break up. We HAVE to keep that line. Keep that line in tact and keep Jordan Staal. If we let anybody go for cap space, Jussi and Rosie are odd man out. Semin has been SO big for us.
